#MMBBR #Review #FirstLine #TheLastDay by @andrewhunterm via #partner @DuttonBooks and @NetGalley #NetGalley who provided a #free #reviewcopy


A visionary and powerful debut thriller set in a terrifyingly plausible dystopian near-future--with clear parallels to today's headlines--in which the future of humanity lies in the hands of one woman, a scientist who has stumbled upon a secret that the government will go to any lengths to keep hidden 


It is 2059, and the world has crashed. Forty years ago, a solar catastrophe began to slow the planet's rotation to a stop. Now one half of the globe is permanently sunlit, the other half trapped in an endless night. The United States has colonized the southern half of Great Britain--lucky enough to find itself in the narrow habitable region left between frozen darkness and scorching sunlight--where both nations have managed to survive the ensuing chaos by isolating themselves from the rest of the world.

Ellen Hopper is a scientist living on a frostbitten rig in the cold Atlantic. She wants nothing more to do with her country after its slide into casual violence and brutal authoritarianism. Yet when two government officials arrive, demanding she return to London to see her dying college mentor, she accepts--and begins to unravel a secret that threatens not only the nation's fragile balance, but the future of the whole human race.

The Last Day
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

FirstLine ~ PROLOGUE - JUNE Two thirty a.m., and no signal yet.

This book was one of those books that causes you to think, really think about the things we tend not to think about day to day. I think this book really affected me because of the current state of the world. I thought what we were going though now was awful...but that is not the case when you compare it to the adventure of survival in The Last Day. I have always valued and marveled at sunsets and sunrises, but what if they were gone? In this environmental dystopia novel you will think about that and so much more! A book that will suck you in and not easily let you go. A must read for lovers of this genre.
